Google Pixel 2 XL vs. Apple iPhone X - Let the Battle Begin

Google Pixel 2 XL vs. Apple iPhone X - Let the Battle Begin”

This is, of course, a good safety feature, but there are a lot of drawbacks too. This year, LG and Apple are also offering this feature on their phones, but Google, for some reason, still thinks that Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL buyers still don't need wireless charging. You'll get a 12MP snapper here with optical and electronic image stabilisation, plus both phase-detect and laser-assisted autofocus, as well as auto HDR. But their are differences. That's because the Pixel 2 XL has Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 CPU. This battery is bigger than any of those used in the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 (S8+), or even iPhone 8 Plus, among others. It can run circles around anything Qualcomm can now produce.

"With Pixel Buds, we're excited to put all the power of the Google Assistant into a pair of headphones you can take with you everywhere", said Google product manager Adam Champy. "The Pixel 2's photo performance is really impressive at 99, and just one point short of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which scored an awesome 100 in our photo category", wrote the reputed website in its review. That's because of a few things: first, it's larger at 6in; second, it's an OLED display; and third, it's got a higher resolution.

The race between the two rivals, Google and Apple is not a deep-rooted concept for us. The Pixel 2 XL also listens for any music playing nearby, identifies the song and displays the title and album on the lock screen. This is just one step to a future of bezel-less devices.

The phones are priced at $649 and $849 to start, each $50 cheaper than the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, respectively.

Offline sales are very important and should not be overlooked even in developed countries.

So, does this mean you can look forward to the same quality of photos if you pick up a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL? The Pixel 2 XL will come for Rs. 73,000 and Rs. 82,000 for the 64GB/128GB models, respectively.

The new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 instead feature a USB-C audio port, which isn't compatible with the majority of wired headphones on the market. That's because the iPhone 8 Plus offer dual 12MP telephoto and wide angle lenses in the rear.

For example, the $249 Google Clips, set to arrive soon in the USA, "is a totally new way to capture genuine, spontaneous moments - all powered by machine learning and AI", Osterloh noted.

After the barrage of Echo devices Amazon released in late September, Google just countered with a surprise of its own.
